Typing sentences vs Multiple choice
I think there is probably logic in combing typing and multiple choice, but the multiple choice question seem to be ten times easier than the typed questions. A couple seem a bit trcky, but most are self evident if you can recognise a word or two. Similarly with the drop boxes for the articles. If I've just typed a ten word sentence, which would have been marked wrong if any element was incorrect, then it's a bit odd that I'm being asked relatively simple gender questions (I know genders are a nightmare to remember, but I mean comparative difficulty).
The drop boxes are annoying, because you can't use the Keyboard, and it would actually be quicker (for me) to type the articles.
